As if Tom Brady needed any more weapons, he just got one of the best young receivers in the NFL to help him win another Super Bowl in the 2017 season. The New England Patriots traded their first and third round picks in the upcoming NFL draft in exchange for Brandin Cooks, who’s numbers the past couple seasons rival the best in his position.

The first-round pick is No. 32 overall, the last selection of the round. The Patriots also will trade a third-round pick (No. 103) to New Orleans and receive the Saints’ fourth-round pick (No. 118), sources tell ESPN’s Dianna Russini.

The Patriots reportedly made an effort to trade for Cooks just a few weeks ago in exchange for their first round pick and the Saints weren’t interested at the time.

Cooks is coming off back-to-back 1,100-yard seasons. The Saints traded up to draft Cooks with the 20th pick of the 2014 draft. He has emerged as one of the NFL’s most dynamic playmakers, with a total of 17 touchdown catches over the past two years and two of the four longest receptions in the NFL last year (98 yards and 87 yards).

Teams in the AFC should be very afraid.
